Home Support Scanners DS Series Epson DS-1630

The colors of my scanned image don't match the colors of my original document or photo when I use Epson Scan 2. What should I do?

    Printed colors can never exactly match the colors on your computer monitor because printers and monitors use different color systems: monitors use RGB (red, green, and blue) and printers typically use CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black).

    Check the color matching and color management capabilities of your computer, display adapter, and the software you are using to see if they are affecting the palette of colors you see on your screen.

    To adjust the colors in your scanned image, adjust these Epson Scan 2 settings (if available) and try scanning again:

    • If the Image Type setting is Color or Grayscale, adjust the Contrast setting.
    • If the Image Type setting is Black & White or Grayscale, adjust the Color Enhance setting.
